We kinda agree.

I meant specifically the cost of the cabin before extras. They want/need that flat income per day whether the ship is moving or not.

To have a 2 night stay at a port in the Carribean on a five day cruise means....one stop. I would not think that to be much of a cruise.

To stay overnight at 3 ports turns a 5 day scruise into 8 or so and starts to price the average working slob (like me!!) out of the cruise.

I agree that the ship is the destination with the ports being a bonus or a diversion.

Like Dave, my wife and I also enjoy land vacations. I highly recommend 5 days in Ixtapa on an all-inclusive at the El Presidente. Suite for two and everything (EVERYTHING) included for under $2K.
